    Excellent collection that rotates monthly of wonder examples of quilts from all over the world. Contemporary and antique quilts abound in this wonderfully restored Grand Victorian House.

    A thoughtfully curated special exhibit, a fantastic permanent collection, and a delightful gift shop make this gem a great destination for a day trip or a weekend getaway. And you might just meet the artists while you're there. I went twice -- once for the special exhibit and once for the permanent collection. World class.

    This place is fun to explore as it is full of treasures. Lots of collectable items! A person could go through this place a couple of times and still not see everything. Check it out!

    We stopped in for a look-about and left as wine club members!!!! I love this type of wine club....we signed up for the two bottles a month, and you get selections from all over the world including great wines from Washington state. We had a tasting, sat and sipped while watching the boats motor by. Love the selection of wines here...we grabbed some wonderful bottles from Spain, Greece and France. Can't wait to un cork them. This is a gem of a spot in little ol' La Conner.

    My wife and I discovered this gem of a hike while on a day trip to La Conner, and it was the perfect compliment to an afternoon of browsing shops in town. The trailhead is just a quick 10 minute drive across the Rainbow Bridge from downtown La Conner, through Swinomish tribal lands. The small parking lot at the trailhead was nearly full when we arrived just before 6:30pm on a Friday evening, enjoying a gorgeous spring evening and the late sunlight that we are fortunate to have in Washington.

    After a short downhill walk on an access road, we reached the tidal flats and crossed it on a sandy path between piles of driftwood and beaches on either side. We spotted two herons on the shore as we ascended into the forest of Kiket Island. At the three-way fork a hundred yards or so up the incline, we took the right branch through a lovely coastal forest of cedars and firs, on a well-maintained trail through underbrush of ferns and salad. This was an easy amble up short stretches of hilly terrain suitable for all levels.

    Toward the east end of the island, there is a great overview with a bench facing the water with views of the Salish Sea towards Deception Pass. We paused a few minutes on the bench to admire the view and listen to the chirps of birds around us. A short while later, we descended to the flat recreation area at the end of the trail, which had a large picnic shelter and clean restroom. There are several signs in this area that describe the life of the Native Peoples and the importance of this area to them. Take a couple of minutes and read them, as a small token of respect for accessing their lands.

    Before heading back, we took the short trail to Flagstaff Point on the far side of the island and explored the southern rocky beach (the northern beach and top of the small butte are not open for access). We spied a lone oystercatcher at the westerly end and gave it a wide berth as we admired the gorgeous views across the water to Skagit Island, Deception Pass, and Whidbey Island. While walking back to the western trailhead along the rocky shore, I indulged my inner child and flipped a few barnacle-encrusted rocks over and delighted at the crabs scurrying underneath before gently replacing the rock.

    We took the rightmost path back through the island, dodging a few muddy spots, which offered views to the Sound through the trees to the south. It was approaching magic hour and the shadows were lengthening when we emerged from the forest and left the island to recross the short spit. Our heron sentinels were gone, but we had each other's company for the short uphill walk back to our car. It was just shy of 8pm when we left the parking lot, which had emptied out by then. We changed out of our hiking shoes and headed back into La Conner for a wonderful dinner where we chatted about this incredible local find, adding it to our list of experiences to enjoy when we return.

    This may have been the most interesting and accessible local museum I have ever visited. It's quite small, but we spent almost an hour there and will go back to see more. Since I grew up on a farm in Michigan, I spent a lot of time looking at the farming exhibits, but there was so much more to see.

    My family has been using the bulk detergent from Handmade La Conner for nearly a year now, and likely will not go back to regular commercial products. First, the products are manufactured in the back of the store using safe natural ingredients, and then packaged in bulk. Second, even a small bag of the detergent goes a long way; for our high-efficiency front-loading washer, we use about 1/2 tablespoon of the powdered detergent per load.

    While we can order the products online, since we happened to be in town for a long weekend, we decided to stop in and see where the products are made. In addition to cleaning products, there are also a wide variety of beauty products and other organic, natural goods, from lip moisturizer to soap to re-usable shopping bags to t-shirts to pens and pencils. There's something for everybody here.

    Stan O'Neil does an excellent job with glass. Comparable quality pieces at other galleries would be more expensive and not as well done. He also has a workshop on Camano Island which we visited. He and his wife are delightful

    My husband and I went to LaConner and enjoyed winetasting at Skagit Crest Winery. The staff was friendly and informative. Thanks Tina. The wine was all good. It was hard to choose which to buy. We ended up with Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio. I have had the opportunity to help bottle and pick at the winery over the past summer. Donna and Chuck are the owners and they work very hard and the efforts show in the quality of their product. Check it out!!! The tasting room is open at noon on weekends in the winter. Google them to check out their hours as they change seasonally. The reds are also very good! The ID ? below would be ID yes if needed for an age check.

    Stopped in just before closing on Sunday but owner was gracious and we didn't feel rushed. Tried a few glasses and bought a couple of bottles. Owner was also kind enough to recommended a couple of restaurants and called to Oyster & Thistle and made us a reservation. If you buy a bottle of wine at Skagit and show receipt at Oyster & Thistle there is no corkage fee. We really appreciated it.

    Exploring the area around La Conner we discovered this park. Clean, safe and easy to access. I thought of future visits and bringing my grandchildren. There is some construction in the area with a sculpture and access for kayaks. worth the visit

    What a great time we had visiting and seeing this unique yacht turned into a time capsule museum. Loved it. La Conner's got another thing we can do when we are there visiting again.
